College Basketball: Cards Fall to Irish 104-101 in Five Overtimes

The Louisville Cards and Notre Dame Fighting Irish battled for more than three-and-a-half hours in South Bend last night and this morning, with the Irish finally coming out on top 104-101 in five overtimes.

U of L was seemingly on its way to victory late in regulation, with a seven point lead and 42 seconds left to play,  but Notre Dame came back to tie the game at 60.

The teams traded leads for five extra periods before the Irish pulled ahead for good.   Five of the last six games between the teams have been decided in overtime.
